Book Description: Everything we’ve seen through the first seven issues of “Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal” has been building to this moment. Marjorie, our time jumping thief with a devil may care attitude is on the most important job of her life. To pull off this job she has Harriet, her temporal police officer sister, and her sidekick, Tim. The fate of the history of the universe is at stake. Marjorie’s ex, Stan, and the Lord of Evil have designed a machine that will make the first humans believe they saw something other than the sun and begin to worship it. This will potentially change the theological perspective of mankind forever. The Lord of Evil plans to make himself what mankind worships. This will subvert God and simultaneously sneak this move past the temporal police’s ability to correct time. All that stands between him and victory are two squabbling sisters and a head in a jar. Will Marjorie and Harriet be able to put aside their differences to save humanity? Will religion as we know it ever be the same? Will Tim finally get that kiss from Marjorie he’s yearned for all these years? Find out in the exciting conclusion of “Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal”!

I deliberately put off reading the last book of “Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal” for a while. This title has been a guilty pleasure of mine and I didn’t want it to end. Marjorie Finnegan is a chaotic Doctor Who. She randomly shows up anywhere in time and space, makes her presence felt, and then disappears.
There are a lot of innuendos in this book. There are also some moments along the way where any subtlety of innuendo is thrown out the window. This mixed in with some cursing has me telling people this is not a children’s book. If you’re not squeamish about dirty jokes you’re in for a treat.
From start to finish the artwork on the interior pages is the perfect compliment to the story. It’s a touch whimsical, which is a great match to Marjorie’s personality. I’ll never forget how she charged at Henry VIII.
As a geek on a budget I thoroughly enjoyed “Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal”. It was filled with good artwork and laughs from cover to cover. At this time I would advise getting the complete story in TPB form. It’s cheaper and faster than hunting down each individual issue.
